Call centre ResQ celebrated its 12th anniversary by organising a charity football match at the Stadium of Light.
The privately-owned business, based in Hull and Seaham, has always been a strong advocate and supporter of local charities, raising tens of thousands of pounds over the years, and this year it chose two charities to focus its main efforts on, Health Stars in Hull, which is working with CAMHS on a new inpatient unit in the city, and the Bradley Lowery Foundation in Seaham.
The latest activity was the fundraising football match between its two call centres, with Hull taking on Seaham. Each centre took a squad of 18 players to the ground where the two teams battled it out over 90 minutes. To raise money, all players paid a minimum of £25 and some even arranged sponsorship from clients, friends and family. A programme was designed free of charge by Hull marketing agency Pace Communications and @ITSpectrum donated the printing.
